SAN LEANDRO (KRON)—In the midst of an artistic transformation Saturday, the city of San Leandro welcomed what city leaders hope will become an iconic sculpture symbolizing the importance of empowering women.
KRON4’s Philippe Djegal was there as the sculpture “Truth is Beauty” was revealed.
A stunning sight to behold.
Two years after it’s creation, ‘Truth is Beauty” is now in San Leandro, ushered in with the support of the community and, its creator, Bay Area artist Marco Cochrane, who debuted the work of art at burning man in 2014.
The message behind the 55-foot tall sculpture, weighting 13,000 pounds, “What would the world be like if women were safe?”
